Classic watches for men

Wind him up this Christmas with our favourite timeless men’s watches that will remain his go-to accessory for years to come.

  • The Grand Lange 1, with its large double date window and refined manual-winding movement, best encapsulates the spirit of A. Lange & Söhne. Since its debut in 1994, it has become the ambassador par excellence for this legendary German brand from Glashütte (£31,000).
  • If it’s a classic dress watch with an elegant retro character you are looking for, this Pierre Arpels watch by Van Cleef & Arpels is the perfect match. Designed by Pierre Arpels in 1949, it comes in a 42mm white gold case with a slinky white gold Milanese bracelet (£34,100).
  • The dial layout of this Arnold & Son Eight-Day Royal Navy watch corresponds to that of an 8th-century marine chronometer; the movement, however, is pure 21st century (£9,760).
  • Synonymous with luxurious travel accessories, Louis Vuitton’s Voyager GMT is the perfect watch for globetrotters. Masculine, contemporary and imbued with the design codes of the Maison in the form of a commanding letter ‘V’, it is not only useful but stylish also (£4,050).
  • Piaget’s original Polo watch, released in 1979, was the watch of choice of the jet-set crowd with a penchant for expensive sporting events. Entirely revamped in 2016, the stylish Polo S (S for steel) is destined to become Piaget’s new luxury sports classic (£10,500).
